Buckeyes Land A Running Back


With J.K. Dobbins departure to the NFL and the injury this spring to Master Teague, Ohio State was in dire need of a running back. They got one in the form of Oklahoma's Trey Sermon. After gaining more than 2,000 yards in three-years with the Sooners, the graduate transfer announced on Twitter Sunday that he was coming to Ohio State.

Sermon is a versatile back, who has had explosive moments with the Sooners. After gaining 744 yards his freshman year, he gained 947 yards as a sophomore. A left knee injury took away most of his junior year when he rushed for 385 yards and averaged 7.1 yards per carry. For his career, Sermon is averaging 6.1 yards per attempt and has also been productive as a receiver, with 36 catches for 391 yards. Because he is graduating from Oklahoma, Sermon will be eligible immediately at Ohio State. You can check out some of his Oklahoma highlights below.
